Basic Obedience Training

Basic obedience, leadership and overall general manners are so important because a dog who has no understanding of leadership, respect, and one who doesn’t understand what you are asking for will only result in a frustrated dog…and frustrated pet parent! Once that happens, your dog can start misbehaving, acting out in ways that are destructive or aggressive all because they don’t have anything to do and have no purpose.

Dogs, by nature, are pack animals with a well-defined social order. As you and your family become your dog’s pack, your new dog will look to you – the leader of the pack – for guidance. Leadership can be established in a firm but friendly manner. Keep in mind that it is unrealistic to expect the dog to abide by the rules of the household without the leader teaching appropriate behavior! Much like people, every dog is different. Some are hyperactive. Some are laid-back. Some are serious. Others are silly. Some are shy, and yet others have too much confidence. Regardless of these differences, training is necessary for all dogs and beneficial to your entire family.

TRAINING WILL

  • Help correct nuisance behaviors such as jumping on people, digging, barking, and chewing, while providing mental and physical activities for your dog.
  • Deepen the bond between you and your dog, and to increase the enjoyment, companionship and satisfaction of your relationship with your dog.
  • Ensure your dog’s safety and happiness.
  • Nurture good canine companionship for the benefit of your family, neighborhood and community.

Your dog wants to please you! They might be bored, they want to learn…some of them depending on the breed, crave to learn! Once they learn to learn, you will see an amazing transformation and connection with them and all of a sudden you have a much more well behaved dog who listens to you and waits for your next command!

How do I get my dog signed up for in home basic obedience sessions?

I set up a time for a consultation in your home and it usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour. It will give me an opportunity to meet with you and your family members to find out what your training needs are and how I can help you. From there we can set up a training regimen. This may be anywhere from 6-8 weeks; once a week for about an hour to an hour and a half. *some dogs may require more than 1 weekly session*. Prices are based on the training needs of your dog.


*There is a small consultation fee which varies by location.

Are you ready?

I will work with you, your dog and your family members to teach you leadership skills, give you the training tools and show you how to implement them with your dog on a daily basis. Every moment that your dog is with you is a training opportunity! I will also help you to become more aware of the reasons why your dog may be acting a certain way. 99% of dog issues are due to human miscommunication, lack of exercise, and lack of mental stimulation. By following my training program – you, the family AND your dog will have a win-win situation improving the quality of life for all!
